Seattle’s female-focused weekly comedy show, “The Comedy Womb,” put on one of the funniest and well-rounded shows of the day on Saturday at Bumbershoot. Led by MC and producer, Danielle K.L. Gregoire, the show featured 16 of the city’s best underground comedians each performing 3-minute sets at the Leo K. Theatre. The show was well-paced and Gregoire did a great job keeping the audience engaged while the performers all delivered solid sets that got big laughs.
Rachel Walls opened with a joke about the sorry state of her dating experiences.
“I’ve been single so long it’s starting to get suspicious,” Walls said begrudgingly. “I’m like an empty bus seat during rush hour.”
Performing at the same festival as his childhood idols, the Wu-Tang Clan, must have been bitter-sweet for comedian Nick Decktor.
“When I was a child my parents said, ‘You can be anything you want to be when you grow up,’ but what’s an eight-year-old Jew supposed to do to be in the Wu-Tang Clan?” Decktor wondered.
